Election Day! Voting in the tri-state area will most likely be a bit bananas with the need to relocate many of the poll locations, so double check before heading out.
If you still are in need of a crash course on the issues at large, be sure to check out The Commission on the Presidential Debates mini tutorial.
Once your civic duty has been fulfilled
technically voting is not a duty but rather a benefit, you can then fulfill your humanitarian duty and help out those still in need.
Some easy ways to contribute:
- Donate supplies to Occupy Sandy’s Brooklyn relief outpost via amazon gift registry
- Support ASPCA’s field rescues in Rockaway, Queens and New Jersey
- Give to the American Red Cross
- Support Architecture for Humanity’s Hurricane Sandy Reconstruction
We are still stunned by the severe damage but so impressed with the amazing outpour of support and compassion across the nation. And while the massive donations from celebrities and corporations are tremendous, remember every little bit counts.
See you upstate!
